Jeera Paratha

Adding cumin to paratha gives a nice flavour. In many blogs as well in my blog we have talked a lot about cumin seeds. So I don't think I have anything new to say...so, I'm moving to the recipe directly...




Ingredients :

1. Wheat Flour - 1 Cup
2. Cumin - 2 tsp
3. Pepper powder - 1 tsp
4. Salt - Needed qty
5. Oil - 2 tsp
6. Ghee - Small qty

Procedure :

1. Combine all the ingredients except ghee. Add water and make a soft dough.

2. Cover with damp cloth and keep it as such for atleast 30 minutes.

3. Now, roll the dough to parathas.

4. Put rolled paratha on a pre-heated tava. Let that side cook.

5. Now, pour half a teaspoon of ghee on top of the paratha and flip it to the other side.

6. Let the other side cook.

7. Serve hot with any Kurma or Gravy.

Lovely parathas I love the cumin flavour I make them often but use olive oil instead of ghee for healthier option.
